Day 2 just for the boys blog hop with Camelot Fabrics as our sponsor

ps. added 2 more days..

  Welcome to our 2nd day of a  pretty special HOP...Why so special?...Welllll- we all like BOYS, of all ages, we love to cheer for others, we love to stretch our creativity...These hops do just that…All those who will be participation in our JUST FOR BOYS hop, love boys too. I am so excited to see what they will come up with.

So if this is your first time then you are in for a delightful time, if you are returning, well we will just continue to muster you with all the warmth we can….

What to expect…..WE are here to challenge our very creative friends to  THINK Boys!-anything and everything BOYS, tall, small, young, old...BOYS. This HOP is exclusively for those who have some BOY things in mind... quilts, nap sacks, sleeping bags, pillows...you name it if it looks like a BOY of any age would like it, we want to see it and YOU!

Recently I made something for a YOUNG Man  (BOY) in my life. This was my theme ( Man of Steel)  and all of my attention was focused on this fabric line from Camelot Fabrics and who happens to be our sponsor for this hop as well. You will have to wait and see the completed quilt and photos, I am tickled BLUE with it...( pink is for girls)  And a big thanks to Mary who managed to find this exquisite model... I am soooo into Man of Steel now. There is a wonderful story about Kal-El that will certainly bring a smile to your lips...will share on my day of our Boy Hop!

And who will be leading us into BOY LAND.....?
AMY is our cheerleader for this hop from Sew Incredibly Crazy  ( schedule is here and on side bar)
 and crazy she is not..but she is creative, funny, committed over the top CHEERLEADER. So we think she is young enough at heart to tackle this hop...

So who will be here today to have you celebrating all the BOYS, MEN in our lives…? Well these pretty amazing ladies….
Be sure to cheer them on, they do this for YOU!

My Son
Ohhh - he was a handfulfilled with a sense of joyhe knew how to make hismark on me- with just a simple toy
He would wrap it up with kissesand hide it behind his backhis smile would last foreverI wish I could  keep track
The hours of enjoyment that he alone could doI knew if he was too quiethe was in mischief too! 
I would sneak up to his roomand watch him from afarand know darn well I would catch him with another candy bar!

  19. I get why you might not be so fond of the 3 Stooges. I am the oldest of three with two boys right after me, with only three separating me from the youngest of us. My parents would not let us watch it as of course, we thought it was okay to punch, poke, bop on the head etc. Poor mom with the crying and tattling about who hit who.

  20. Love the reel idea - what about using it to frame some old baseball tees...hmm

  21. The Three Stooges quilt is graphic and striking. Ha ha, striking. Little play on words there, completely accidental. Thank you for the chance to win.

You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
